let's begin with that forecast. toss it over to jackie, talk about rain that could be on the way. >> yeah, this afternoon i think we will see it. we had a few earlier this morning but looking good at this hour. check out the risk cam, and you can see even a few breaks in the clouds already. 76 degrees so it is a warm and muggy start here, and there's live super dopler. clean sweep, my friend, we haven't seen that in a while. but this will get busy later on this afternoon. today more likely even than what we saw yesterday, mostly cloudy, 77 at 9:00, 83 by noon, and muggy this afternoon with the thunderstorms at 5:00 o'clock, and 84 degrees. so keep that in mind for the commute home, how is the commute in, though. here is amanda meadows. >> well, if you are on 395 northbound, the commute is very slow this morning. three of those right lanes closed unfortunately due to the accident. you can see, traffic is just crawling in those through lanes
6:01 am
on 395 northbound. as your approach consider actually as you come past. in from the springfield inner change, you are going to have to get to the far left lanes to get around that, if you can use those. we also have a shot from our cameras and that shows you the same scene is there, a little bit closer up. again, the two left lanes closed. the other thing you can see, if you can remove that super you can see the tow truck there, and that is getting that car up on to the flat bed, so that's going to be great news once they do get that cleared. question also have got an indent working on the g.w. parkway, heading over to our mapping system that will be g.w. parkway in both directions. they are getting that tree cleared, rout one at fort hud road. that is clearing though, so that should be out of here soon. not too bad if you are coming in 95. for now, i will send it back to you. >> okay, amanda thank you.
